Great off road / often stranded on road

ReviewLove solid-truck experience of Range Rovers built in the 90's. Those built later are too car like with plastic-covered bumpers and low-profile tires. No one would take them seriously off road; but the 90's vehicles have all the creature comforts inside the cabin of luxury sedan, yet they're 100% truck on the outside. The four-wheel drive system is better than any I've used. None of the binding you get with some 4x4s when you turn hard. None of the wheel spin that you get with many positraction systems before the posi kicks in. I've scaled steep rocks with sloped sandy spots, and the wheels didn't spin an inch when one hit sand. But beware of maintenance!
Best FeaturesSmooth 4x4 system, TANK-like truck build (with huge frame), great clearance, superb visibility -- and all with the creature comforts of a Jaguar.
Worst FeaturesHigh cost of parts ($1100 radiator). Entire drivetrain has held up well with no repairs needed (143k miles), but radiator, alternator, ABS brakes, have been a bear. Not as reliable as it should be. No undercoating, so it's a complete rust bucket underneath. Poor gas mileage, yet underpowered.
